Ard Matthews, renowned as one of South Africa’s most prized singers, songwriters, and award-winning artists, is a cherished household name and personality. Bursting onto the music scene with his distinctive sultry voice in the 90s as the frontman of the iconic rock band Just Jinjer, Ard led the group to soar from height to height with hit songs such as ‘What He Means,’ ‘Shallow Waters,’ and ‘She Knows,’ among others. Over the past two decades, the band has headlined some of South Africa’s most significant festivals and graced the stages of legendary music venues across the United States.Branching out into a solo career, Ard launched his debut solo album in 2012, followed by his second studio album ‘Impossible Machines’ in 2018, a title that intriguingly foreshadowed his next great adventure. This release not only showcased his profound artistic evolution but also earned him a prestigious South African Music Award.In a remarkable testament to his adventurous spirit and resilience, Ard recently accomplished a formidable feat — An Atlantic crossing from Cape Town to The Caribbean on his boat, aptly named ‘The Impossible Machine.’Remaining the charismatic frontman of Just Jinjer to this day, Ard continues to captivate audiences, both with his band and as a solo artist. His solo performances are intimate affairs, where he shares his indelible lyrics, enchanting ballads, and heartfelt stories from a life that has been nothing short of colorful and enchanted. Fans leave his shows feeling like cherished friends, having been part of a unique and personal storytelling experience that only Ard Matthews can provide.
